The IN.DI.E Music Project stands for Interculture, Diversity and Empowerment. They offer support and training in music education, career advice and industry networking for musicians with diverse backgrounds living in Germany. This month, Chris Nicholson spoke to project leaders Matthias Witt and Ayham Nabuti to explore the many ways IN.DI.E Music is creating social and personal change on both the large and small scales.
Matthias and Ayham share touching stories from their experience putting together the project and demonstrate how the negative effects of socially constructed labels can be rejected through music and collaboration.
IN.DI.E Music is funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia and administered by the State Music Academy North Rhine-Westphalia. Find out more here.
